Selling Silver Flatware? Check for Hallmarks!
If you are considering selling silver flatware, check for hallmarks. All that polishes up like silver is not silver. Many items are silver plated which most refineries will not accept. To verify if your items are indeed sterling silver check for the following hallmarks: “sterling”, “925”, “950”. These items would be sterling and can be purchased as silver. European Countries used pictorial hallmarks to specify silver purity levels and the silversmith’s hallmark. Russian silver is generally marked with “800”, “825”, and “850”.
